  • Aims and scope

    Analecta Hermeneutica is the annual refereed journal of the International Institute for Hermeneutics (IIH). It provides an intellectual forum for interdisciplinary, inter-religious, and international hermeneutic research. The journal publishes research in the form of articles, reviews, and other scholarly contributions in all hermeneutically related fields, with a particular focus on philosophy, theology, and comparative literature. We invite scholars from various linguistic communities to contribute innovative and critical articles to the hermeneutic conversation. Although the primary language of Analecta Hermeneutica is English, articles in German, French, Italian, and Spanish are welcome. They will be published accompanied by an English abstract. All submissions are subject to peer review.

  • Profile

    Founded in 2001 with a mandate from Hans-Georg Gadamer, the International Institute for Hermeneutics (IIH) facilitates the fusion of horizons of human meaning through historical, philosophical, and theological research. It is founded upon the conviction that interdisciplinary, inter-religious, and inter-linguistic discussion must be at the forefront of the pluralistic university of the twenty-first century. In pursuit of this goal, the IIH opens a forum for interdisciplinary and multi-lingual collaboration on hermeneutics, particularly, though not exclusively, in philosophy, theology, and comparative literature. Through seminars, lectures, conferences, and publishing, the IIH situates academic hermeneutic praxis, the concrete activity of interpreting texts, within the framework of general hermeneutic theory. Although primarily a research institute, the IIH has a view to the application of hermeneutics in teaching. Its mission is to facilitate the uncovering and reflective analysis of the hermeneutic presuppositions and foundational disputes operating within the academy, inspire research in hermeneutics, and assist university departments in including hermeneutics in their pedagogy

  • Guide to authors

    Analecta Hermeneutica invites submissions of papers on topics relating to hermeneutics or hermeneutic studies of philosophy, theology, literature or art. Papers are an average of 10, 000 words in length. Please follow the formatting of published articles (i.e., endnotes rather than footnotes, no in-text citations, first reference in full, second in shortened form, etc.). This journal uses the Chicago Manual of Style citation style.

    Contributors may respond to published articles and submit their responses. These will be considered for publication in the volume in which the article to which they are responding appeared. Thus every volume of AH is in principle open to expansion.

    All submissions subject to peer review.

    We invite short reviews of notices of books related to hermeneutics. We are particularly interested in English reviews of books appearing in other languages.
